Customer Service Representative

I handle a large amount of customers every shift. It is important to move quickly because we have a same day deadline of 9 a.m. There can be stressful times and difficult customer relations at times but I possess the skills and ability to handle the issues put forth.

Waitress

Freddie Paul's Steakhouse

Maintained a level head in a very fast paced environment. Keeping priorities in order is key, memory also plays a huge factor. Being a pleasant person to be around and always taking care of any crisis immediately is also required. In order to function well with any person who walks in the door, I have had to have a cool temper and I also have the ability to diffuse a difficult situation before it gets out of hand.

Customer Service Representative

Dry Cleaning Station

As a front counter personnel, it was my responsibility to ensure that customers had a positive experience while picking up their dry cleaning. I was constantly in crisis mode because of lost clothing that customers were not happy about. Maintaining confidence and staying calm when faced with an angry customer was the greatest learning experience from this job.

Objective

I am a Public Relations major with a marketing minor. I chose this combination because I love public relations but I am more attracted to the business side of it. After graduation, I would love to work for a corporate business in a large public relations department. I would also enjoy small businesses and advertising agencies, I do want to stay involved in the business and marketing aspect of my degree for at least 10 years. I eventually want to work for a non-profit organization that is doing great things for the world. I am in Omega Phi Alpha which is a national service sorority, our main principles are friendship, leadership and service so service to others is something that remains very close to my heart. Eventually, my dream would be to open my own event planning business about 20 years from now, I enjoy organization and cleanliness. I am an extremely motivated person who will strive for anything and everything I want from life.

Skills

Skills

Social Media

I have had a social networking profile on MySpace and Facebook since about the sixth grade. I am very fluent in social media of all kind and have a lot of patience for searching on social media sites. I know exactly the kinds of statuses that do and don't get attention.

Time Management and Alignment of Priorities

My whole life I have never forgotten a test or an assignment. I always turn things in on time, it is obsessively annoyingly reliable. I have the kind of mind that allows me to know exactly what it takes to get the best possible results I can. 

Graphic Design

I have taken one class on graphic design for public relations but I am enrolled in a second course title graphic design for strategic communications. This class is next semester, which will be my last semester before graduation so it will be fresh in my mind. I am fluent in photoshop and pretty impressive at InDesign. 

Grammar, Spelling and Flow of Writing

I have always been a great speller, seeing words spelled wrong drives me crazy. I have always excelled in writing essays, reports, news releases, proposals or research papers of any kind. I love to write, it is my passion.
